St Peters Julian Catholic Church
I am not a church goer or anything but I do love that the walls of the entrance are encased in these majestic murals. I think they are really peaceful

People Walking Here
Pyrmont bridge is hugely occupied zone for commuters, tourists, and cyclists. There are now speed zones, marked for bikes, police patrol it, and a fair few signs posted saying to give way to pedestrians. It almost seems as though there needs to be a bike lane or something to help with the traffic.
I noticed this sticker when walking along it one evening and thought it was appropriate. There weren’t any others like it that I could see, but it seems to be a message enforcing the right of people walking here.

Like Melbourne…
This alleyway is used for functions, and rotating street art-work.  It doesn’t change that frequently, but is a great use of the space. It’s nice that pop-up bars are becoming fashionable. It makes the city a bit more exciting…

Old Buildings…
In most major cities in Australia that I have been to (Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney), have often been renovated into offices or other, with remnants of their history left behind.
These can be old business names, heritage buildings, banks or even another blank canvas for artists.  This is located on King Street, Sydney.

Yes I do have Abs!
I love this. This is located on the new-ish walkway that goes over the bridge from Cammeray to Neutral Bay. Some punks had a bit of fun, but I think it’s really creative.

Fiend
This walkway is full of street art. Nothing like a blank canvas, to encourage the inner artist. This is my favourite work on the walkway between Cammeray & Neutral Bay

Strange writings on the ground….
There were lots of these on this one pathway. I wasn’t sure if these were markings for an exercise club, or construction. It didn’t look like there was evidence of the latter, but none-the-less an interesting discovery.

Portobello Road on Flickr.
Made You Look
This was taken on my trip to London in 2011.  Portobello Road in Notting Hill is a notorious shopping avenue, with great knick knacks, and cafe’s. This was above a residential property, and most of the houses along Portobello Road are all different colours. 
It’s like being in Wonderland, for me at least.
I’m pretty sure this house is opposite the house where Oscar Wilde lived or some other notable writer. Great memory I have eh.
It’s kind of funny this message is where it is. As the whole street is eye catching, in an almost deliberate kind of way which is why it attracts such tourism.
Scrabble anyone?
